A Bold Resolve
This year should prove to be very interesting. Things have changed so much since last January! Democrats now control Congress. Saddam is dead. The economy is booming in some places and struggling in others. And the educational system is redefining itself in an attempt to become more relevant to our changing times. Seems like its not just a New Yearits a New World!
Where many at least attempted to observe the spirit of Peace, love and understanding over the Christmas holidays, the New Year bowed in with people locked in mortal combat as far as the eye could see. Frequently, the bickering wasnt over substantial issues, but centered on the most insignificant of differences!
So how do you plan to be successful in this New Year? Have you resolved to attack your studies with a new burst of energy? Do you have sweet plans you want to see come to fruition before semesters end? What has recently become important to you that might not have been high on your list of priorities before?
Im wary of lightly-made resolutions, because they have very little chance of ever succeeding. But it is more than wise to scope out the events that appear to be rising on the horizon, and then make preparations to either avoid them or find a way to use them to your advantage.
May I suggest some good ideas to keep in mind?
If you start your year with these things in mind, it will make a good beginning to what we pray will be a wonderful year for you. There are yet greater things to be accomplished. And youll never have a better chance of achieving those great things, than when you put Jesus Christ first in your life and trust Him to lead and guide you to the fulfillment of your dreams.
Know that your friend at Christian Destiny are praying for you as you make the vital decisions that will set your course for the New Year. Feel free to write or call us at our headquarters if you have a problem you need to talk through or if youre not already a Christian, and need to know how to become one.
Happy New Year! It shows every indication of being an exciting (and maybe even wild) journey for all of us. I pray that God will guide, inspire and protect you as you live for Him this year.
